                             Clockwork - Peggy Sue
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: oddysee3030
E-mail: oddysee3030@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

As far as I can tell, this song is meant to be played fingerstyle(i.e. without a pick).

I used the album version of this song and the live version in the video below for reference.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Th8JbXPzFs

I'm not sure about some of the lyrics because there are none available online, apparently.
If you have any insight on the lyrics please don't hesitate to leave a comment so I can fix them.

IMPORTANT: There are one beat rests in the Main Riff denoted by four spaces between notes instead of two.
These rests are essential to having the song flow and sound correct.


                                    Main Riff:
e|----------0-----------------------0-----------------------------------------------|
B|----3-----------3-----3-----3-----------3----------------0----------------------0-|
G|-------4-----------4-----------4-----------4-------3-----------3----------3-------|
D|-4-----------4-----------4-----------4----------------4-----------4----------4----|
A|------------------------------------------------4-----------4----------4----------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
(The 8th note, B3, is played in the album version but not played live so take it or leave it)
(It sounds good either way but it does make a difference to the overall sound)


                                  First Part:

(I muted the low E for a lot of this but you can really just play it by ear)
(If an open low E sounds good to you in a chord, play it, if not, mute or avoid playing it)

I spent way too much time on this, but I hope you enjoy playing this song!
I love Peggy Sue, they are so talented, it's insane how underrated they are.
Anyways, leave a comment if you have something to say.
